EMC Intros "The Beast" - XtremIO 4.0 for All Flash Arrays

EMC unveiled XtremIO version 4.0, a non-disruptive free software upgrade to XtremIO v3.X all-flash arrays for enabling larger configurations, expanded on-demand capabilities and consolidated workloads.

EMC said XtremIO 4.0 will transform data center applications with breakthrough in-memory copy services, enabling entire workflows to be streamlined and automated from the storage through the hypervisor and into the application. XtremIO 4.0 Highlights:

  • Enhanced Data Protection – XtremIO supports powerful scale-out replication based on best-of-breed EMC RecoverPoint software. Data on XtremIO arrays can be replicated to other XtremIO arrays or any array supported by RecoverPoint. XtremIO replication delivers up to one-minute Recovery Point Objectives (RPO), even when replicating at data center scale with flash-array levels of workload and data change rates.
  • Bigger, Faster Clusters – EMC is introducing a new 40TB X-Brick building block, which is double the density of previous XtremIO systems. In addition, XtremIO clusters now scale up to eight X-Bricks with 16 N-way active controllers (up from 12), capable of delivering petabytes of effective capacity in a single rack through inline data reduction and space-efficient copies.
  • Online Expansion – XtremIO arrays now can be non-disruptively expanded for performance and capacity, with automatic rebalancing and no application downtime.
  • Application Automation – XtremIO's copy data management functions are integrated into key enterprise application management stacks such as VMware, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange to automate rich use cases, including the scheduling, attachment and expiration of space-efficient copies to application hosts.
  • Multi-Array Management – XtremIO 4.0 allows single pane of glass management for multiple XtremIO clusters from a common XtremIO Management Server (XMS).
  • More Powerful Interface – XtremIO 4.0 introduces extended historical reporting, maintaining two years of operating history, as well as sophisticated tagging and search functionality for handling large numbers of provisioned volumes, hosts and snapshots. It also boasts improved built-in reporting capabilities.
  • More Scalable – XtremIO 4.0 supports more hosts per array, more X-Bricks per array and more snapshots than before.
  • Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud 3.0 – With XtremIO and the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud 3.0 offering, customers can now consolidate all mission-critical workloads and their non-production lifecycle copies into their Hybrid Cloud with Tier 0 Storage and Copy Services. This enables some of the most compelling hybrid cloud use cases like Database-as-a-Service and SAP-as-a-Service.

EMC noted that in the 18 months since becoming available, XtremIO has risen to become the fastest-selling product in company history and the market's top-selling all-flash storage array according to IDC.
